“After having dived into master pieces, one cannot unsee how not only haiku can be a way of living, but chess too. What an exciting pairing! Ron Scully takes us along on a journey through a magnifying glass, sharpening the characters and ties of pieces, their tractive forces, and draws on 64 squares and beyond. Move for move. Picture a game of chess, bent heads, and as the pieces move, so does life, and the players as well. Thought-provoking poems from the well-trained eye of a dedicated observer.”

— Kati Mohr, Poet & Artist
